Loic Remy “set to complete £8m Liverpool move”

Loic Remy will complete an £8 million move to Liverpool next week after agreeing personal terms with the club on Friday night, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Romano, a journalist at Sky Sport Italia and several other media outlets in Italy, tweeted This Is Anfield on Friday night to confirm that the deal is imminent, following speculation this week.

Romano tells us that 27-year-old Remy will sign for Liverpool on a five year deal and the Reds have activated the release clause, believed to be around £8 million, in his QPR contract.

Update: We understand Remy has agreed a 5-year deal, on £60,000 per week.

Earlier on Friday, the links with Remy were growing with the Daily Mirror reporting talks had stalled over the French striker’s wages.

Remy spent 2013/14 on-loan to Newcastle Utd, scoring 14 goals in 26 appearances for the Magpies.

His prolific record, as well as him creating 30 goalscoring chances for teammates according to Squawka, hasn’t gone unnoticed by Rodgers, who is looking to reshape his attack following Luis Suarez‘s departure to Barcelona.

Darren Lewis on the Daily Mirror revealed he had received confirmation of Liverpool’s negotiations from QPR late on Friday night:

The Hoops have confirmed to Mirror Sport that they are in talks with the Anfield club over the 27-year France striker.

Remy – who scored 14 goals in 26 games on loan at Newcastle last season – has a well-documented £8.5million clause in his contract which applies only to clubs in the top four.

Remy would become Liverpool’s fifth signing of the summer if Romano is correct, following the arrivals of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can and Lazar Markovic.

With Oussama Assaidi set for a move to Stoke City and Fabio Borini to Sunderland, Liverpool are making good progress in the transfer market this summer.

    Did you know that Jamie Carragher was a massive Everton fan? ;)

  • red_kiwi2014

    kiss good by CL next year. remy… what a joke LFC is becoming.

    • ?oe ?na?her ßloggs

      The only joke I laughed at is your command of the English language.

      Go home son.

    • Rak S

      LOL…What an idiot!
      The whole of our business isn’t even complete yet!!!

  • Rabid Red

    So let me get this right. Sturridge, Sterling, Markovic and Ibe all fast. Remy very very fast. Starting to get goose bumps…that is until West Ham or Chelsea visit and park the bus.

    • Gerrard17

      Then we have coutinho and lallana to unlock them. But I do think we need one more creative player like isco.

    • ?oe ?na?her ßloggs

      I checked “Parked buses” in the phrasebook and saw:

      “See Lambert, Rickie”

  • sammy

    remy will be on 60k a week done deal,thats a steal in todays market,add reus to that and we can win the league once the defence is sorted

    • ?oe ?na?her ßloggs

      60k? Source?
      He was asking 80-90k.

      • Rabid Red

        he was asking for that when there were three suitors. Now there is just one. The talk is pretty specific so would be a pretty elaborate lie if it was bs. Arsenal ofad 50k salary. Pulled out of the race. Pool ofad 60k. Last man standing

      • sammy

        read it on twiter,i think it will improve dependent on his performance

  • Bloody from Serbia

    Costa is not close to world class.. I’m so happy he came to Chelsea..

  • Red83

    sell him in january for 88 million an make a tidy 80 mill profit….hahaha

  • gora-gora-xabi-alonso

    Eight million. That’s peanuts. So definitely worth a gamble. If he steps out of line I’m sure the Beast will sort him out.

    • Rak S

      Not even a gamble really. the 8m we’d be paying is probably less that his mkt value, so in theory, we could still sell him at a profit in 12 months

  • Siraaj Hodor Petersen

    8 Million Quid for 10+ goals a season. Shrewed bit of business.

  • Gerrard17

    Ok now I’ll believe him.

  • Nathan Wright

    Think your maths is as crazy as your name mate.
    Aguero, Dzeko, Negredo, Jovetic. That’s 4

  • goldsphinix

    people praised borini’s performance at sunderland last season, and when i watched him he did do well. except, he does not score a lot of goals from open play in the premier league, which is what lfc need. borini’s a good lad, but ill take remy for 8 mil. i suspect BR will still target a big name attacker. lots of games this season.

  • goldsphinix

    i really wish the club would go after Reus, but alas it seems as if they are not. he really is the total player.

  • Matt

    What a brilliant piece of business by BR selling Borini for 14M and getting Remy for 8.5 WOW! I’m looking forward to the season already add a few more signings and we’ll be looking good.

    Look at the way Chelsea defended us last year. Park the bus like chicken poops cause they didnt dare go wide open. We will threaten teams this year with the same relentless pace. Sturridge, Sterling, Coutinho with a valuable year in book will be ready to step up. Not to mention, Lallana, Markovic, Can, and Lambert have something to prove. Remy is like Sturidge in need of a coach to bring confidence and fire.We lost Suar
